Evernote to OneNote export missing titles SOLVED

Recommended Posts


Had the issue where the migration from Evernote to OneNote using the OneNote Importer lost some titles, seeming random.

I looked at the XML in a text editor, and noticed that some XML tags on those with no title was different (missing some XML, which set the encoding, which I think is the issue).

So, I did the following:

1) export from Evernote the notes you want to migrate (manually).

2) open the resulting .enex file in textedit

3) do a manual find/replace in textedit, replacing the seemingly "faulty" tag <![CDATA[<!DOCTYPE en-note SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd"> with <![CDATA[<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="no"?><!DOCTYPE en-note SYSTEM "http://xml.evernote.com/pub/enml2.dtd"><en-note>

4) Save the file in textedit

4) Open the OneNote import tool.

5) Re-run the import with the OneNote import tool, selecting the newly saved file  (with the find/replace carried out).

Evernote team, this appears to be your (export) issue, not Microsoft's import issue.

Hot damn!  This worked!  *THANK YOU!!*  

I'll note that people who don't have a textedit installed you will want to use notepad++, since notepad can't do a find and replace with a string as long as the second one.

Also, I had been concerned that replacing the first tag with the second might accidentally also replace an additional <en-note><en-note> at the end; this doesn't seem to matter.
